On the Parenting for a Peaceful World USA Tour, Robin Grille stops by the Museum of Motherhood in New York City and talks with founder and director, Joy Rose, on the culturally un-examined history of motherhood and how MOM illuminates this blindspot. MOM is helping to shape a new story of motherhood: for example, how there are other people and projects requiring mothering in our world, and perhaps mothering children is only one avenue of mothering. Joy talks about the museum's many historical and cultural venues for exploring motherhood and how the "world's most important job" is kept in a cultural blindspot, but how that could be changing with the Family Leave Act. The United States is one of only three countries not supporting families after the birth of a child.
The Parenting for a Peaceful World USA Tour was a nonprofit collaboration to feature the work of Robin Grille and his book by the same title. This film interview was produced by Kindred Magazine as part of Kindred's nonprofit mission to bring the social evolution story of parenting to seven cities in December 2013.
